z-axis problem


Recommended Posts

Posted · z-axis problem


until now, I' ve printed a lot of parts for a prototyp.

Now I observe, that in the higher slices the print fails. In picture 15.52.46 you can see the first print with accurate print.

Same G-code, same SD-card, everything equal to the first print, but the following prints were faulty.

Picture 15.50.10 is the last one. You can see, that the disturbance moves.

Somebody has a idea?

Thank you for helping

    Hi Could you put them next to each other?

    It looks like only the top is different?

    How many successful and failed prints have you made?

    Could it maybe be that your filament spool ran (close to) empty?

    Could either be underextrusion or bed drop. In this case I think I'm more inclined to think that it's underextrusion causing it. How many hours have you printed? Did it start abruptly or have you noticed a steady decline in print quality? Have you had to increase your temperature on prints that previously printed just fine?

    thanks for the answers. Printtime 1 hour. On the picture left the first print, then scound and third print. The banding disruption moves down. The filament spool ist new and full.

    Longer prints bevor ( more than 9 houres) were fine.

    Is there a topic with pictures of all possible mistakes or failed prints and solutions?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
